Founded in 1987 by Belgium-born designer Ann Demeulemeester, the namesake brand is known for its punk-inspired, gothic yet glamorous clothing. Ann Demeulemeester studied fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp from 1978 to 1981 before making a name for herself as one of Antwerp's new wave of conceptual fashion designers. Combining romance with a hint of rebellion, the clothing collection boasts traditional tailoring techniques that are updated with an alternative edge. Ann Demeulemeester tops perfectly capture the dark innovation the brand is famed for. Marrying together sophisticated sheer shirts with draped tops and asymmetric knits, the clothing collection is strong yet sensual. Edgy yet luxurious, Ann Demeulemeester tops embody the brand's fiercely feminine signature look.
